The Longest Night Worship Service
Join us on Monday, Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. in Waveland Hall for the Longest Night Worship Service!
Church is intentional about upholding the members and friends of our community in whatever season of life they may find themselves. While the holiday season is usually portrayed as one entire month of feasting and festivities, for most people, that is simply not reality.
This year, Dec. 21 is the winter solstice. It is the longest night of the year. As we feel the darkness growing deeper around us, many of us sense the need to go deeper within ourselves. In the midst of decorated everything and holiday music everywhere, we long for a time of quiet and reflection. Just a moment of quiet to breathe and reflect.
Additionally, we are carrying burdens, sometimes seen, often unseen. Many are dealing with un-employment, under-employment, grief, separation, divorce, marital and family stress, loneliness, illness, chronic pain, and the list goes on. We simply need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concerns; and we need to know that we are not alone.
Come and join with us for candle-lighting, healing prayers, quiet, scripture, heart-felt reflections and music that acknowledge that God’s Presence is for you and that God’s Word comes to shine light into your life and our world.
Everyone, regardless of Church affiliation (or lack of it) is welcome.
